Research Interests

My research has involved linking changes in land-use, climate or policy to changes in populations of imperiled aquatic organisms, and my analysis techniques have often centered on understanding and quantifying uncertainty. I am particularly drawn to conducting research on rare and elusive fishes, especially darters. This fauna is incredibly diverse and unique; however, it also demonstrates a high degree of imperilment.
